    HRSC Press Release #019 - Olympus Mons (orbit 0037)

 
 RGB Farbbild / RGB Colour Image This vertical view shows the complex caldera (volcanic summit crater) of Olympus Mons on Mars, the highest volcano in our Solar System with an average elevation of 22 km. The caldera has a depth of about 3 km. This is the first high resolution color image of the complete caldera of Olympus Mons. The color image was taken from a height of 273 km in orbit 37 by the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on Mars Express on 21 January 2004. The view is centered at 18.3°N and 227°E. The image is about 102 km across with a resolution of 12 m per pixel. South is up.

 
 Perspektive #1 / Perspective view This perspective view shows the southern part of the caldera (volcanic summit crater) of Olympus Mons on Mars. The image has been calculated from the digital elevation model derived from the stereo channels and combined with the nadir- and color channels of the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on Mars Express. The scene reveals tongue-shaped mass-movement features in 3D on the southern wall. The data has been retrieved from a height of 273 km in orbit 37 on 21 January 2004. The view is centered at 18.3°N and 227°E. The image is about 40 km across. The vertical exaggeration is 1.8. South is up.

 
 Perspektive #2 / Perspective view #2 This perspective view shows the complex caldera (volcanic summit crater) of Olympus Mons on Mars. The image has been calculated from the digital elevation model derived from the stereo channels and combined with the nadir- and color channels of the High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) on Mars Express. The data has been retrieved from a height of 273 km in orbit 37 on 21 January 2004. The view is centered at 18.3°N and 227°E. The image is 102 km across and has a resolution of 12 m per pixel. The vertical exaggeration is 1.8. South is up.

 
 Rot-Cyan Anaglyphe / Red-cyan anaglyphe The colour scenes have been derived from the three HRSC-colour channels and the nadir channel. The perspective views have been calculated from the digital terrain model derived from the stereo channels. The anaglyph image was calculated from the nadir and one stereo channel. The black and white high resolution images were derived form the nadir channel which provides the highest detail of all channels.

The High Resolution Stereo Camera (HRSC) experiment on the ESA Mars Express Mission is led by the Principal Investigator (PI) Prof. Dr. Gerhard Neukum who also designed the camera technically. The science team of the experiment consists of 40 Co-Investigators from 33 institutions and 10 nations. The camera was developed at the German Aerospace Center (DLR) under the leadership of the PI G. Neukum and built in cooperation with industrial partners (EADS Astrium, Lewicki Microelectronic GmbH and Jena-Optronik GmbH). The experiment on Mars Express is operated by the DLR Institute of Planetary Research, through ESA/ESOC. The systematic processing of the HRSC image data is carried out at DLR. The scenes shown here were created by the PI-group at the Institute for Geological Sciences of the Freie Universitaet Berlin in cooperation with the German Aerospace Center (DLR), Institute of Planetary Research, Berlin.
